TRIBUTES HAVE BEEN flowing in for popular tv chef Paolo Tullio who passed away yesterday aged 65.

Tullio, an Italian michelin star chef, was well-known as a warm and generous critic on RTE’s ‘The Restaurant’. He had been ill for a number of months.

He had been the Irish Independent’s main food critic since 1997 and made weekly appearances on Seán Moncrieff’s afternoon show on Newstalk, where his double act with the host was a treat for listeners.

His agent Noel Kelly told his Facebook followers that he is “missing a great friend, full of kindness and with only positive things to say of others”.

Twitter tributes have been flowing for a man who was universally loved it seems.
